Happy first day of June! It’s pretty crazy that the first half of the year is over. May was another one of those weird months for me. I feel like this entire year so far has been one weird and crazy year for me though, honestly. I was busy some of the time. I had family visit at one point. Majority of the time my mind was elsewhere. With that being said, I didn’t read as much as I hoped I would in May and that was such a bummer! I barely got four books read. I finished my fourth book just one day before the month ended. I decided to read a really short book for my fourth book, just so I could have more books read for the month.
So, what did I read this month? You can find a full list of these books and the other books I read this year over here. All will be linked to Goodreads below and I will also link to individual blog posts for them if I did a review.
Physically Read Books:
These are the books that I read myself (not audiobooks) throughout the month of May.
Catfishing on Catnet by Naomi Kritzer – 4 out of 5 stars
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton – 5 out of 5 stars
Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger – 4 out of 5 stars
I’m a Therapist, and My Patient is Going to be the Next School Shooter by Dr. Harper – 2 out of 5 stars
Catfishing on Catnet was a lot of fun to read. I really enjoyed the characters and friendships. It kept me guessing and I can’t wait for the sequel. The Outsiders was a reread. I love this book so much, so I had to reread it again. I think this was my fourth time reading it? It’s so good and I highly recommend if you haven’t read it yet. It’s only about 200 pages, so it’s a quick read too! I wanted to read Follow Me Back for a while now and I completely forgot I even had it on my Kindle. I really liked this one and flew through it. I want to read the sequel as soon as I can, because I am curious as to what happens next. The ending was a little weird and confusing, so I guess we’ll see what happens.
First I want to say that I’m a Therapist, and My Patient is Going to be the Next School Shooter is a ridiculously long book title and that’s kind of annoying, lol. This isn’t even the full title, there’s more on Goodreads. As you can see above, I only gave it two stars. I read through it really fast (it was the short book I mentioned above) and it was interesting sometimes, but it wasn’t really what I expected it to be. At first it seemed like it was non-fiction and that was what I was looking for, but things were way too strange and when I looked it up again in the middle of reading it, I seen that it’s fiction. It was interesting and okay at times, but I didn’t love it. There’s another book in the series, but I’m not sure if I will read it or not.
What books did you read in May? Have you read any of the books that I read? Feel free to link me to you wrap up post, so I can check it out!
I’m not really sure what I am going to read in June, but I may try to finally dive into some of the ARCs that I have and wasn’t able to read yet. I did start The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins (the new Hunger Games book), so that may be my first June read and we’ll see what happens from there.
I mentioned in my book haul post a few days ago that I got a new laptop and I was super stoked to get back into blogging again with my new laptop, well…there was a problem with Amazon and I didn’t get the laptop I ordered and had to reorder elsewhere. That was such a bummer. I ordered a brand new one, but for some reason they sent me a used damaged one even though I ordered a brand new one, UGH. I returned it and ordered one directly from Apple’s website instead, and because of that I now have to wait even longer for my new laptop. For now and sadly, I am back on my old laptop. 😦
Anyway, I think that’s all I have for this post but I’ll leave you with this picture that I took at the park a week or so ago. Andy and I decided to go walk around the park for a little while for Pokemon Go community day. It was a nice day out and I really like how this picture turned out.
In case you missed it;

Oooh, I am going to check out “The outsiders!” Thanks!❤️❤️❤️
I hope you enjoy The Outsiders when you get the chance to read it. 🙂
Hey, you do what you have to do to get in as many books as you can. Shorter books totally count! 😉
Hah, agreed! Love to get in those shorter books if I can’t read longer ones.
That photo is gorgeous! And you have totally reminded me I need to read The Outsiders some time soon.. I still can’t believe I’ve never read that one. I hope your new laptop will arrive soon! xx
Thank you! I really hope you enjoy The Outsiders when you get the chance to read it. It really is such a great book. Hoping my laptop will be here early next week.
It’s been years since I read The Outsiders, but I got some good memories of that one. I hope your June brings good things your way ❤
I always love rereading The Outsiders. I’m glad you have some good memories of it. Thank you ❤
May was a weird month for sure. I’m kinda falling into a reading slump now and need to get away from it asap! Hopefully some reading sessions this weekend will help me.
I hope June will be a MUCH better month for both of us! ❤
I hope you’re out of your reading slump! I definitely am not out of mine. I haven’t finished a single book yet this month, UGH. Thank you ❤
May was such a strange month. 4 books is already great, you’re doing amazing Ashley! and I’m so sorry to hear about the laptop issues, I really hope you will get your new one really soon ❤
Sending you all the love ❤ ❤
I agree about May being such a strange month. Thank you so much, Marie. I hope June has been treating you well so far. ❤
4 books is great! And I do the same thing sometimes, adding a short book. Or even adding books I read for my job or course that are on Goodreads, just to get those numbers up 🙂
Hope you get your new laptop soon! And I love the picture of the park, it’s so peaceful ❤
Whatever counts to get the numbers up, haha. 😛 I may have to read some short books this month because I have yet to finish a book so far UGH. Thank you ❤ I finally got my new laptop!
4 books is amazing, so don’t feel pressure! ❤️ and I’m glad to see you’ve enjoyed Follow me Back, I’ve heard good things 😍👏🏻
Thank you ❤ Follow Me Back was really good and I'm glad I finally read it.
